To mark the beginning of this new decade in design, Design Switzerland is delighted to move to Alcova a new exhibition space to showcase the work of the selected studios.
Alcova is a platform for independent design developed by Space Caviar and Studio Vedèt. Currently operating as an itinerant network of exhibition spaces across multiple sites in and around Milan, it activates forgotten locations of historical significance, temporarily recasting them as venues for performative activities.
Last but not least, a Call for projects was launched by the end of 2019 to design a site specific scenography of this new exhibition space. The selected studio, Lausanne-based iiode is developing an eco-driven concept based on a structure made of charred Swiss wood milled in Romandie, designed especially for the venue. The modular setup will be unveiled on 21 April at the opening of the Design Switzerland exhibition.
